NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tim McGraw and Curb Records could be headed to court over an unreleased album.
The independent record label filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit last week against McGraw, claiming the country superstar failed to provide a fifth and final album that met contractual obligations under their deal by an April deadline.
McGraw turned in an album last fall called “Emotional Traffic,” and a No. 1 single from those sessions has been released. But the label contends the singer did not record the songs on the album during a contractually stipulated window, thus breaking the deal.
The label asks a judge in the nine-page lawsuit filed in Davidson County Chancery Court not only to force McGraw to turn in new material for a fifth album, but also to revoke an agreement between the two that eliminated a sixth album from the deal.
